A story from Tonka’s adopter, Kaitlin: Tonka was an owner surrender who was brought into the SPCA in July 2012. He’s a Lab/Rotty, my two favorite breeds, so it’s easy to say he stole my heart almost immediately. I had already adopted a cat (Willow), so I really wasn’t looking for the added responsibility of … More >

A story from Cheetah and Whiskers’ adopters: We adopted Cheetah and Whiskers in the summer of 2007, when they were tiny little kittens of about 6 weeks. They didn’t have names at that point, and so 6-year-old Charlie and 2-year-old Susanne named Cheetah for her stripes (made sense to them back them!) and her speed … More >

A report from Valerie, the adopter of Mia (formerly Joy).  Mia was adopted at the end of January 2013: My husband thought she looked like a “Mia,” so that’s what we’ve been calling her.

A report from one of Lady Bug’s adopters, Deborah: We adopted Lady Bug in the Fall of 2005 (I think).  They said she was about 2 years old, but then, they say that about any dog not a puppy or ancient.  Her name was Lady Bug then and now–she even had her photo in the … More >

Lilly Belle (formerly Chelsea) was adopted from the shelter in November 2010, at between 3 or 4 years old.  Her owner is not quite sure what kind of dog she is–she definitely has some beagle in there!  She came already housebroken and spayed so she must have been someone’s pet before landing at the shelter. Today … More >

A report from Brynn’s adopter Braedon: Brynn was adopted at the very beginning of June 2012 when she was about 1.5 years old, and she seemed like quite the mellow pitt bull mix.
